SportFuel and Eat Like the Pros are TEAM WILD! We recommend wild salmon and feature only wild, sustainable salmon and other fish on our menu. Here’s why…

The farm-raised vs. wild salmon facts:

  1. Wild salmon have a better omega-3:omega-6 ratio
  2. Farm-raised salmon contain more PCBs (toxins) than wild salmon
  3. Wild salmon are naturally “salmon”-colored, but farm-raised salmon is artificially colored
  4. Farm-raised salmon are given antibiotics because they are often disease-ridden
  5. Waste from farm-raised salmon often pollutes the environment, harming wild salmon
